Five Things You Never Knew Your Cell Phone Could Do

Please understand I don’t have any notion of turning this blog into a idea site of some kind. I simply thought the following was worth passing alone. Also I couldn’t really think of any thing to write this morning. I promise to have something new up tomorrow.

I have been writing this blog for only 30 days now.  I have had 329 hits. That is about 300 more than I expected. Thanks everyone. If you have any ideas on what you would like to see more of or something new please drop me   a line at


The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find
Yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile network and there is an
Emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to
Establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly, this number 112
can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.


Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone:
If you lock your keys In the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on
their cell phone from your cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will
unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other ‘remote’ for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).

It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked
Our car over a cell phone!’


Imagine your cell battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370#. Your cell phone will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you
charge your cell phone next time.


To check your Mobile phone’s serial number, key in the following Digits on your phone: *#06#. A 15-digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it
somewhere safe.

When your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won’t get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can’t use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.


Cell phone companies are charging us $1.00 to $1.75 or more for 411 information calls when they don’t have to. Most of us do not carry a telephone directory in our vehicle, which makes this situation even more of a problem. When you need to use the 411 information option, simply dial: (800)FREE411, or (800) 373-3411 without incurring any charge at all. Program this into your cell phone now.

I used this three or four times in the last week and does work and it is free. You may have to listen to a very short add. Nothing distraction or aggravating.

    I have read these before, but I’ll be honest, there are probably WAY more than five things my cell phone will do that I don’t know about. As my Daddy says, “It has more bells and whistles than I will EVER need.”

    I have the simplist one in my house. It doesn’t play music or take pictures. It really doesn’t do hardly any thing except work all the time. I add this because it seems like everyone else is always complaining about theirs.
